Update on Warrants of Removal/Reissuance of Expired Warrants
NOTICE TO THE BAR
LANDLORD TENANT-RELAXATION OF RULE 6:7-l(d) (“WARRANT OF REMOVAL,
ISSUANCE, EXECUTION”); REISSUANCE OF EXPIRED WARRANTS
The moratorium on evictions pursuant to Executive Order 106 prohibited the
execution of warrants of removal except in very limited circumstances. As a
result, warrants of removal that had been issued by the court expired before they
could be executed.
The Supreme Court has relaxed Rule 6:7-l(d) to allow for a one-time
reissuance of those warrants of removal that could not be executed within 30 days
of issuance during the moratorium on residential evictions imposed due to the
COVID-19 pandemic. The relaxation permits the one-time reissuance of such
expired warrants of removal upon the letter request of a landlord-plaintiff and
without the requirement of a motion and a warrant fee. The Court’s September 9,
2021 Order is attached.
Landlord-plaintiffs may request reissuance of these expired warrants of
removal through December 31, 2021.
Questions regarding this notice may be directed to Taironda E. Phoenix,
Assistant Director for Civil Practice at (609) 815-2900 ext. 54900 or
taironda. phoenix@nj courts. gov.
Glenn A. Grant, J.A.D.
